Songfacts®:

  • Judah & the Lion frontman Judah Akers wrote this song about his wife Lindsey Riley, whom he married in 2015. He told Clash magazine:

    "When we recorded this we were thinking of an early 90s rock style drum with a banjo rolling over it. It's about the first time I met my 'now wife' Lindsey --and in that moment she was all I really wanted or could have hoped for."
